Chatham-Kent Winter Speaker Series: Wild birds learn to sing
March 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Vocal learning in nature: Wild birds learn to sing
Speaker: Dan Mennill
Dan Mennill, Associate Dean of Science at University of Windsor will share his five-year study of song learning with free-living migratory Savannah Sparrows. His work provides the first experimental demonstration that wild birds learn to sing and reveals that young songbirds learn to sing from nearby animals during critical stages of development early in life.
